Walkers Stop in Houghton on Their Trip Around Lake Superior
Mike Link and Kate Crowley are taking a five-month, 1,600 mile walk around Lake Superior's shoreline. On their way, they've stopped in Houghton to talk about freshwater issues with area teachers and the public. Professor Alex Mayer (CEE), director of the Michigan Tech Center for Water and Society, helped the hikers develop a survey to assess the knowledge, beliefs and attitudes of people along the way toward Lake Superior and the Great Lakes. The surveys are being handed out at various meetings aong the way.
A pizza dinner and dialogue with Link and Crowley was provided on May 20th at the Forestry Building Atrium. It was being sponsored by the Western UP Center for Science, Mathematics and Environmental Education, as part of the Lake
Superior Stewardship Initiative, an educational initiative run by the Copper Country Intermediate School District.
Everyone is welcome to come and hear about the pair's adventures so far and to discuss the Great Lake that so many communities depend on for their water supply, fish, commerce and recreation.
